It has been widely circulated that West Ham United had offers for Swansea City duo Alfie Mawson and Lukasz Fabianski rejected on Saturday, while Football London state the Hammers bid for the goalkeeper was just £5 million.

The Irons are expected to be busy this summer, with new manager Manuel Pellegrini demanding funds to improve a squad that underperformed in 2017-18.

Strength in depth is an issue and West Ham are expected to sign a new goalkeeper after Joe Hart’s poor loan stint with the London club came to an end.

Fabianski has shown over recent years that he can be a solid stopper in a struggling side and will surely leave Swansea for a Premier League club.

The Poland international, who is away with his nation ahead of the World Cup starting this week, would be an interesting option for West Ham.

It remains to be seen whether Fabianski is wanted as the Hammers’ number one goalkeeper or as competition for Adrian, but an offer of £5 million is unlikely to convince Swansea to sell him.

While funds will need to stretch as far as possible this summer, West Ham will need to up the ante to land major targets.
